About Becky & her Blog
Becky is a winner of Top 25 Mental Wellness Blogs by Moms
What mental wellness or mental health issues do you blog about?
Band Back Together is a group weblog that provides educational resources as well as a safe, moderated, supportive environment to share stories of survival. Through the power of real stories written by real people, we can work together to destigmatize depression, perinatal mood disorders, grief, trauma, baby loss and other mental illnesses that we may learn, grow, and heal.
Together, we can use stories - our own stories - to touch lives, to educate and empower; to make sure that we are none of us alone.
All are welcome.
If you could give other moms one tip on mental wellness, what would it be?
Be true to yourself, remember that your story matters, and don't be afraid to tell it. You never know who, sitting at a computer screen millions miles away, may read the words you write and feel less alone in their struggles. No matter how alone you feel, we are none of us alone.
What mental wellness resources would you recommend for moms? (Support systems, specific websites...)
I recommend writing and connecting with other moms who may be going through the same things - who have the ability to understand you in a unique way. Realizing that you are not alone in your struggles and triumphs is empowering and strengthening.
We have a multitude of resource pages available to help moms, including: http://www.bandbacktogether.com/depression-resources, http://www.bandbacktogether.com/postpartum-depression-resources, http://www.bandbacktogether.com/talking-children-death-resources, and http://www.bandbacktogether.com/domestic-abuse-resources.
Other sites we love include http://kellymom.com/ and http://postpartumprogress.org/, both of which have an incredible amount of support for moms.
